Nichole is a metalsmith and jewelry designer dedicated to making unique jewelry. All of her work is handmade, giving each item individual attention so that no one piece is exactly the same.
I draw my designs from life around me. Made to last, I work hard to make sure that my pieces are as durable as they are timeless. It is important to me that my customers are able to purchase my jewelry with a clean conscience. All materials and stones are ethically sourced with the utmost care, focusing on both an environmental and humane impact.
